We look forward to reading acclaimed historian Iain McCalman's The Reef - A passionate History. The first book of its kind, The Reef, charts the shifting status of the Great Barrier Reef from labyrinth of terror to global treasure, in 12 extraordinary tales".
The Reef includes the passionate battle fought in the 60's by Judith Wright, Len Webb and John Büsst from 'Ninney Rise', (Büsst's home at Bingil Bay), that culminated in the World Heritage listing of the Reef.
"The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system. It can be
seen from outer space, has been selected as a World Heritage Site and is
labelled one of the seven natural wonders of the world, yet few know the social, cultural and environmental history behind it.
Today, the reef is known for its astonishing underwater beauty and diversity, however once it was notorious for shipwrecks in its treacherous waters".
